The <**2* *1* performed the charmiag little opera of “Latta’’was composed of twenty six young ladies c£ Aiken, et all age*, from ive up to “sweet sixteenM_ •aet of What* wen* pupils of Prnftunm Wtn.

The ins troduction of ‘Home, Sweet Home,” and “The Last Rose of Summer/’ were skillfully introduced and most charmingly rendered by a talented >ouns lady of our town, Likewise n duet from “Norma.” by two of Aiken’s fairest daughters, was sung with exqusitc taste and pathos. But it would be invidious ro particularise where all was so excellent. Each one wont through her difficult role with admirable precision, and the Queen of the Fairies was more than a queen in native grace and beauty. The costumes—an indispensable feature in such a per forma oca—were striking and in remarkably good taste—the brilliant aud dashing robes of fairy land blending harmoniously with the more sober, many tinted hoes of earth. The performance received unbounded applause from beginning to end ; and one little five year old. after executing a difficult solo, was enthusiastically encored, aud went through it again* with all the sang froid and precision of a Nillson. To say that the fairy performance was a success is but faint praise. It was At a meeting of the Central Execs-tire Committee of the Democratic ( arty, held in Columbia on Tuesday, the 6th instant, the- following address to tjje people of the State was Uiiariu*tm*jy adopted andoidered to be published : To the People of South Carolina ; The State Central Executive Committee of the Democratic party do not deem it ncoessary to publish cay lengthy statement of the reasons which indues them to meet at th is* time. It is suffix eicnt to say that events with which th* people of the State are painfully hail. iar, mads it indmpetisiblv that th* cr* ganisntion of* the Democrat ie party In South Carolina should be revived, as the speediest and most practicable ma*** of bringiag together our hitherto Mal feted forces, aud of euuoeutoatiug them in tho straggle into which wa ara faywtij for the maintenance of liberty and!** ta the State, Than it has becost th* doty of tho State Committee to lek* «uck adeps as will suable the people cf the State lo begin the work of gftftf organisation ut. once, end n*£l It thorough and complete.

From oar adversaries must we learn, at last, tho lesson of orgaulaatipa and activity.

Upon the management of'our political affairs depends the security of property, as well as the safety of person. By polities! movements alone can the purification of the State Government be accomplished.— Only through political intftrumentalities can honesty, fidelity and capability regain a prepondering influence in tho councils of the State. To politics then, fljr their own salvation, must the people of South Carolina now address them selves with the vigor, the persistency and the systematic endeavor which mark their conduct in business life. It would not be wise to declare a policy before the party, which shall give effect to it, is is ready for b«»th deliberation and action. The officers must not be chosen until the rank and file of the political army shall have been mustered in and trained. There should bo, in fine, such organisation in each ward, township and county, that when the State Convention shall assemble, it shall represent, by its delegates, the known wishes, opinions and purpose of the organized Democracy of the State. Then will its voice be the voice of the people ; its deterraina tion their’.-*; its fight their battle.
